Islamic Scholar Gets Life in Prison

Yahoo News reported A prominent Islamic scholar who exhorted his followers after the Sept. 11 attacks to join the Taliban and fight U.S. troops was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison. Ali al-Timimi was convicted in April of soliciting treason, inducing others to aid the Taliban, and others to use firearms in violation of federal law.

OTB blogged That his sentencing hearing came a week after home-grown Muslim terrorists bombed the London subway can not have helped his cause.

This is good news. I hope he is held separately, and not a part of the general prison population, because many are converted to Islam in prison.
